Lorenzo's Way


The PEx Book Club decided to have another meetup to discuss our featured book: "13 Reasons Why" by Jay Asher (will do a separate blog about the book).

We were able to discuss some details regarding the book. Though the book was finely written, it leaves a negative impression since it speaks about depression and suicide.

Two guys joined us, a PEx food club member and a film club member. So we decided to have dinner, and the book club meeting was turned to food trip. :)

Since I'm not a Makati girl, I'm not familiar with the restos in the area. So our expert Makati boy brought us to Lorenzo's Way.

Lorenzo's Way is a member of LJC Group, who owns Cafe Adriatico, Fely J's, Abe and many more. It offers mainly Filipino and Spanish cuisine.

We got these as appetizer:


Free Camote Chips

We (okay, they) ordered Heart of Palm with Mango and Shrimps Salad


Heart of Palm with Mango and Shrimps

The salad is julienned ubod with boiled shrimps, ripe mango tossed in vinaigrette. The salad is very simple but good.

For the main course, we had the hardcores:


Paella Valenciana

Paella Valenciana is a classic Spanish rice dish with meat and seafood. It tastes good, but I wish it was a bit dry.


Pinakbet Magalang

For veggies, we had Pinakbet Magalang. I have to be honest, I don't eat pinakbet. :)


Knockout Knuckles

We also had Knockout Knuckles or Crispy Pata. Killer dish!


Beef Ribs Ninja

We also ordered Beef Ribs Ninja, which is so delicious and sweet. The meat is so tender. I liked it.


Bamboo Rice

The unexpected knockout is the Bamboo Rice, which is almost a meal on its own.

For desserts, I could say we got the best:


Claude's Dream

We had Claude's Dream, a macapuno ice cream with pandan jelly topped with fresh coconut meat.


Baked Blueberry Custard

We had Baked Blueberry Custard, which is Vanilla Custard with blueberry sauce baked in an earthen pot or Spanish "casuela".



Pecan Pie

We also had Pecan Pie, which we had a hard time slicing. But it was so good, and it was so heavy.

We had a great time with Lorenzo's Way, it took a while before the main dishes were served because the dishes have to be served at one time. Lorenzo's Way is must try for classic Spanish and Filipino dishes. But be prepared to shell out a bit more than usual. :)

Here's are more pictures from the dinner:


I love the coffee creamers!

Thanks for the treat!
